Benjamin Thorp is an environmental artist who works with sound to give form to a variety of media including sculpture, video, and installation. Much of his recent work has been public and site specific installations that engage audiences in sensory experiences that further appreciation and challenge one’s understanding of their surroundings. His work has been shown in large scale public spaces in Hong Kong and Italy, as well as in museums and galleries in the United States and Europe. 

Benjamin lives and works in Richmond Virginia. He is a sound designer for Black Iris Music, a curator and is currently working on projects to place sound-sculptures throughout the city.
